“The military has encouraged my Judaism. When I was stationed in Guam, the only Torah on the island was stored on base two blocks from where I worked, and I was able to become a leader in the community. I didn’t feel comfortable leading services until then. I’ve been able to connect with Jews and celebrate Shabbat in every community that I have traveled to, and as a lay leader I now make sure that commanders are aware of Jewish opportunities. In many places, you might be an individual instead of a congregation, but you are provided resources and get to decide what you want to create.”
